Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

May have to postpone

Well initially I wanted to start looking for a house around this time so that when our lease was up at the end of March my boyfriend and I could move into a home. But I no for sure now that is not going to happen, mainly due to the fact that my bf’s dad is ill and he wants to stay close for now and I don’t want to buy a house in this area, also, he currently does not make enough money to afford one. So…probably in another year or two we can re-evaluate our situation and begin looking. I am moving this goal toward the bottom of my list :)

I AM...

Probably going to start looking into this more in about 8 months. We just signed a year lease on an apt and are only 12 days into it. So in the mean (time) Im going to save some green. Then in a few more months decide on an area that I (we/my and my bf) would want to live and then start looking from there!

In a year or two....

It would be nice to buy a house but I probably am going to buy one someday w/ my BF. We have talked about it a little but neither of us has any money for that at all. So, we just signed a year lease on a pretty nice apt. But when the lease nears the end (next Feb or so) we will see how my BF and I’s relationship is, and if its where I want it to be…looking into buying a house is a definite possiblity.
